THE HRCR HAGERTY INSURANCE CLUBMANS ROAD RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP 2017
Equally challenging and enjoyable for both driver and navigator, the 2017 HRCR Hagerty Insurance Clubmans Road Rally Championship is a great way to enjoy using your historic vehicle.
The HRCR coordinates an annual series of historic road rallies which offer real tests for driver-navigator partnerships, each rally having a combination of regularity sections on quiet and scenic back-roads combined with special tests at private venues. 2017 celebrates the championship’s 23nd year.
The events mostly run in daylight hours, although one of the new ones for this year may run into the hours of darkness, to add a touch of variety to the series. Usually about 130 miles in length they are single day events at a fraction of the cost of the big-name classic rallies. With entry fees usually around £120 per event, including lunch and a meal at the finish for the crew, they are very affordable.
Thirteen historic rallies are planned for 2016, geographically spread around England and Wales all reassuringly similar in many ways but interestingly different in others. On these events, which are organised and marshalled by motor clubs local to each area, you’ll be mixing with a great variety of historic vehicles. In a new move to broaden the appeal of the championship this year, Category 4 vehicles of the early 80s will be able to compete for overall championship honours. Each event is run to MSA National-B regulations for which Competition Licences are easily obtained.
Routes use the excellent 1:50000 OS Landranger maps and finding the correct route is seldom too difficult for novice navigators, as organisers want everyone to get to the finish having enjoyed the day.
Still worried that you’ll find it all too difficult? Then enquire about the HRCR’s scheduled training days, when experienced competitors give instruction in all aspects of historic road rallying.
